Yorkshire’s Amazing Megaliths Tour
A Two Day Tour Megalithic Tour of Yorkshire’s Ancient & Historical Sites
Since before the Romans arrived in Britain Yorkshire was the centre of Brigantia, the home of the ancient tribes that revered the Goddess Bridget but three thousand years before this mighty stone monuments were being erected across the lands to mark sacred places and pilgrimage routes. Our exploration of the ancient sites of Yorkshire will begin in the town of Ilkley, standing at the foot of Ilkley (or Rombalds) Moor. Here we will start the day in the famous Betty’s Tea Rooms before driving up onto the moor and taking a scenic walk to the Swastika Stone. We will then head west through the Yorkshire countryside to the magnificent Devil’s Arrows Megalithic Stone Alignment and the huge Thornbourgh Henges, booth sitting on the ancient pilgrimage way known as the ‘Ur-Swale Plateau. From here we will head east across the North Yorkshire Moors stopping off at the moors village of Helmsley, on route to picturesque Scarborough, where we will spend the night. Day two starts with a Sunday morning visit to Whitby, the site of the Abbey remains which inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula! We will also have the opportunity to visit the Rudston Monolith the tallest in Europe and the Duggleby Round Barrow and other ancient sites including the Ramsdale stone circle and Bridestones Standing Stones.
